The work carried out by humans in industrial production is in a constant state of change. Megatrends such as demographic change, globalization and personalization are lastingly changing the face of industrial production. Through the digital transformation of industrial production, a whole new range of production work scenarios are evolving.
Industrial work and production systems comprise human interaction, technology and organization as well as their design in different dimensions. At Fraunhofer IPA, we conduct research on digital transformation methods and technologies and their impact on people in tomorrow’s work systems. We make interested parties aware of the technological solutions that can be used to actively shape digitization.
